    :wave2:Hi all

    Im a new marine enthusiast. My bf is an addict and i guess i realised if you cant beat them...join them! Also after giving in to his puppy dog faces in the LFS, i figured payback!;)
    I have purchased a Jebo R338 nano tank with built in sump thingy and T5 lighting. Im looking to keep mainly coral with a few pieces of LR and hopefully work on getting two awesome fish, something fancy...but thats long from now, the coral is my main priority at the moment.

    @*Coral* .... Its not easy to explain besides saying..... Google it lol, type "marine bonzai aquascaping"... But view images an u will get some interesting sample pics,self explanatory....as for a super healthy system,I'd say good husbandry(I dunno wat term to use for females lol)should do the trick, dosings,waterchanges etc.....

    Last night, boy friend and I built and painted the stand, also painted the back glass black on the tank. Going to make a trip to the beach to fill NSW in the tank today after work....:slayer:...can't wait!

    @JsPLAYnz... I'm gettin there. Saw the Bonzai ideas, abit advanced for me i think, but will see what i can do, Thanks again
